Flowers of the Eastern Cape #15 - Any colour as long as it's yellow

When I started this project on 13 May 2010, I said that there is always someting flowring in the Eastern Cape. To prove my point, I decided see what was flowering in the winter months and publish something each week. So far have not been disappointed or short of flowers to photograph - in fact there are a lot that I have missed out on.

The Pincushion protea (Leucospermum cuneiforme) is always spectacular.


Parachute daisys (Ursinia chrysanthemoides) make a very cheerful display.


The Tickberry (Osteospermum moniliferum) has not stopped flowering throughout the winter months. We have always called it Chrysanthemoides.

I have seen proteas only as cut flowers in florists'. The yellow protea is very beutiful.In India too, something is always blooming like in your place. Thanks for visiting my blog.

Its amazing how many yellow flowers there are out there. And here I am with my limited knowledge of flowers which means that I normally call them "yellow flowers" on my blog. LOL!
